I have a CLX-2160N and have just emptied my own waste toner container. (Disclaimer: not sure how toxic or environmentally friendly this is).
Emptied carefully and thoroughly (fine dust). Immersed in bowl of warm soapy water, and vigorous shaking to get nice and clean.
Shook all water out well, and dried off as much as possible. Reinstalled. Turned printer back on. Hey presto - seems happy.

I have discover a very simple & cheap solution for this problem. The only thing you need to do is take the waste toner container and empty it, after that you clean the empty waste toner container with water and few drops of diswashing soap. You have to clean it thourougnly so that the container will be clear, shake it up until it is almost dry. Install it back and it will work.

I have just replaced my imaging unit - now it wants me to replace/install waste toner bin


When the life span of the waste toner container has expired or it's full, the smart panel program window appears on the computer, indicating the waste toner container needs to be replaced. Otherwise your machine stops printing.

To replace it follow these instructions:
-Turn the machine off, then wait a few minutes for the machine to cool.
-Using the handle, completely open the front cover.
-Pull the waste toner container out of the machine using its handle.
-Remove the container's cap from the container, and use it to close the waste toner container opening. Do not tilt or turn over the container.
-Take a new waste toner container out of its package.
-Insert the new container into position and then push it to make sure that it is firmly seated in place.
-Close the front cover firmly. If the front cover is not completely closed, the machine will not operate. -Please make sure all toner cartridges are installed properly. If any toner cartridge is installed improperly, the front cover do not close.
-Turn the machine on.

CLX 3160 waste toner tank error message


Empting the waste toner tank does not always fix this problem. Samsung shines a light through the tank with a photo receptor on the other side. If it the photo receptor does not see enough light, it will trigger the replace waste tank message.
You can fix this by trying to clean the clear window portion of the tank with a q-tip. This is difficult to do since there are parts of this window which is hard to clean with a q-tip.
Or you could wash it out with soapy water until the window is clear of toner. Allow the tank to dry and reinstall.

The waste toner tank may be full. Please open the front cover( where the toner bottles are located).
You will find a transparent "L " shaped box is the waste toner tank.
You may pull it out and replace it.

Replace waste toner tank Does it mean that the toner is already used


Open your user manual.

Or get one - go to google or samsung.

The life of the waste toner container unit is approximately 1,250 pages for full color 5% image printing or 5,000 pages for black printing. When the life span of the waste toner container has expired, Replace/Install Waste Toner Tank appears on the display of the control panel,
indicating the waste toner container needs to be replaced. Otherwise your printer stops printing.

To replace the waste toner container:

1 Turn the machine off, then wait a few minutes for the machine to cool.

2 Open the front cover.

3 Pull the waste toner container out of the machine using its handle.

--- above from manual, following is my paraphrasing due to lack of pictures ---
4. remove the container cap from the back side and cap the opening

5. take the new waste container out of its package

6. install the new waste toner container.

___________
You may wish to TRY EMPTYING the waste toner, but you will find toner is the messiest and possibly dangerous (inhallation, etc) stuff you've worked with. it is an extremely find powder and can cause an awful mess and is best disposed of by capping and replacing the container with a new one (shop around to find them).

DO NOT attempt to vacuum up toner - just my personal opinion - I suspect many vacuums may not have fine enough "bags" to capture this intentionally very fine dust. BUT Toner vacuums do exist and some "may" work.

MESSAGE REPLACE/ INSTALL TONER WASTE TANK EVEN THOGHT I HAVE REPLACE IT ON A SAMSUNG CLX-3160 FN



When this happened, I took the tank out and shook it out into a garbage can (do this outside and be very careful not to breathe the dust). I then took a shop vac and held the hose at the opening while blowing compressed air into the tank. Wiggle the air nozzle around and you'll get out 99% of the toner. Pay extra attention to the sensor optics (plastic bulges on the sides of the tank).These need to be clean since the printer knows when the tank is full because the toner blocks light shining from one side of the tank to the other

Reinstall the tank and be sure it is fully inserted. If they printer is still on, turn it OFF. Close the front door of the machine and turn it back on.

Continue printing.

We have the samsung clx 3160 fn laser printer and the ink is really low and needs to be refilled. Is this something that we need to have a tech service it or can we do it ourselves, also how do we change...


You can buy toner cartridges to this machine and fix the problem yourselves. Go to any office supply store and they will have toner cartridges for the Samsung clx 3160. The display will flash the name fo the cartridge color that needs to be replaced. Just open the front door of the machine, pull out the empty cartridges and pop in the new ones.

Install [color] toner


Try cleaning the 4 connectors - and the connector on the machine. Sounds as the though the information about the cartridge is not getting through to the machine. Use an electronic contact cleaner !
